Adaptive Grazing has been aware of a strategy for rangeland management. Implementing adaptive grazing is challenging due to the dynamics in forage production, livestock behaviors, and external environment such as climate change. This talk covers my research in long-term forage production monitoring for plant functional groups, forage biomass estimation by using drone remote sensing, and cattle grazing behavior modeling through GPS collars. Those rangeland monitoring techniques were utilized to enhance our understanding of rangeland dynamics and can help better application of adaptive grazing strategies.
